Tracking a group of renegade terrorists from London to the Repub. As a member of the Counter Terrorist Unit, Sean Doyle thought he'd seen it all. Tracking a group of renegade terrorists from London to the Republic of Ireland, Doyle and his partner must discover who is funding these men and why. What he discovers is beyond even his experience and threatens not just his life but his sanity too.

Another from Shaun Hutson, in a similar vein to the last I read. I must assume that this is Hutson's genre and others will be similar, a good read which I really enjoyed.

Immortality - the ultimate secret. David and Laura Callahan, like others. Another from Shaun Hutson, in a similar vein to the last I read. Jun 07, 2012 Twerking To Beethoven rated it did not like it.

Renegades falls smack bang into this second category and is about as subtle as a zombie with piles. The plot merely provides a ghastly carcase on which Hutson drapes a series of increasingly nasty tableaux for your delectation. If you have the stomach to persevere, you'll find a hefty dose of (very) black humour and some genuinely clever twists and turns. Some extremely sexually explicit scenes might raise an eyebrow (!) or two.

I guess there are a couple of ways of writing an effectivehorror story; firstly there is the subtle Barker, King or Herbert style of weaving a plot to draw in the unwary and then hitting the reader with a fiendish twist. The second method is perhaps more akin to the scattergun technique, piling horror upon horror until the poor reader is almost begging for mercy. Renegades falls smack bang into this second category and is about as subtle as a zombie with piles. Just when you think Hutson has plumbed the depths of depravity and dumped the foulest cocktail imaginable in front of you, a turn of the page invariably adds the wretched cherry on top! Without including any spoilers here, suffice it to say that the plot concerns the IRA, a man and woman anti-terrorist...a creepy abandoned church containing something nasty, a perverted couple seeking the ultimate thrill etc etc. You get the picture? Renegades employs quite a few clichés from the genre, but who cares? The plot merely provides a ghastly carcase on which Hutson drapes a series of increasingly nasty tableaux for your delectation. If you have the stomach to persevere, you'll find a hefty dose of (very) black humour and some genuinely clever twists and turns. Some extremely sexually explicit scenes might raise an eyebrow (!) or two. Best of all, Hutson sends the genre up mercilessly and must have written this with his tongue painfully and permanently embedded in his cheek. Devotees of the chiller genre will absolutely love this. Me? I felt like I needed a bath afterwards, but am happy to acknowledge a very effective horror novel.

My first thoughts on this were that it had very little to do with horror at all. The 'demon' doesn't come into play until the very end of the book, and is preceded by reams and reams of graphic violence, mostly based around the IRA and terrorism.
The book does move at an astonishing pace, the sort of prose where you skip half the words in order to reach the next turn in the plot on the following page. There's certainly no poeticism here, it's potboiler all the way, but in this sense it is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
I was holding out for some sort of - if not happy, then at least optimistic - ending, but nope, no such luck. The death count gets higher and higher until it blows through the proverbial roof. The ending has a clever little twist, one that would make you cringe if you could see the book as anything deeper than the fun read it is.
To sum it up, I would say hardly life changing but perfectly enjoyable if you love a good bit of sex and violence.
Still can't help wondering if the whole 'horror' part was superficial to the story, but nevertheless, made it interesting.
Not great, but not bad either.
